Woman of the Phoenix
Well, I've listened to the words you lovers speak The sound of the lover's song And I've dreamed all the dreams that a wayward girl dreams In a thousand places gone Dallas was my late night out Radcliffe's served to roust me out And Houston lay like Cleavland with the color removed And all I ever wanted Was to wander and be wooed Like a Woman of the Phoenix A welcomed Waterloo I've seen the sun blaze the breast of the countryside I've seen her huddled in a winter freeze And I've run cross paths of a thousand lives Among the cactus and the white birch trees Avloc ran a waterfront bar Vito, he was the king of thieves And Michael was a rock 'n roll hood from the Odessa plains Now, all of them were my kind Wild and damn near free But, a Woman of the Phoenix is the medicine they need
